Anyone interested in studying the administration of criminal justice in dealing with children will find this work a gold mine. Judge Polier is one of New York's great humane judges, a pioneer in work with underprivileged children. In this book she has brought together every type of case dealing with children and crime; she tries to show the background, the roots from which crime has sprung. A splendid case book, of interest to the social worker and all interested in any phase of welfare, criminology and allied fields. Should be used in college courses on social problems; should be studied in woman's club groups; a valuable book for public library reference shelves.
